Valuable Features

“The flexibility of working with so many types of forms in one platform and also the ability to define different eligible populations for any process are extremely helpful features.”

Liat Oren Wachs, Global HRIS Leader, Senior Director at a tech services company

“The tool allows us to consolidate many review processes into one process. We had a lot of processes and everybody was doing their own thing. This tool has streamlined that succession management process.”

Greg Picozzi, Senior Director IT, Business Intelligence & Data Resources at Norwegian Cruise Line

“The Admin Tools functionality in Employee Central is great. For a technical/functional associate within our IT team, we can accomplish many (but not all) of the requests from our business partners.

The role-based permissions functionality is beyond great (in my opinion) and is honestly more robust and flexible than any other security setup/process that we have with other business software that we use (and have the ability to maintain security roles with).”

Brian Levine, IT Director, Corporate Systems at a retailer

“One of the talent solutions is a learning management system (LMS), which is also my main area of responsibility. Based on my overall experience in the SAP world, I consider the LMS a key component-tool to engage people across the organization. It might be challenging to set it up and align with clients’ requirements. However, once it is done, it becomes very handy and easy to use from a user perspective.”

Room for Improvement

“There should be a single mechanism to manage forms, i.e., to create a template/forms, change/route etc. There is also need for role-based permissions and the ability to add filters in the compensation form.”

Liat Oren Wachs, Global HRIS Leader, Senior Director at a tech services company

“Customers are expecting more features in these modules:

– Employee Central
– Succession and CDP
– RCM integration with Indian job portals”

Jeevan Kumar Bodla, Project Manager at a tech services company

“Would be nice to have more standard integrations created for SuccessFactors. Currently, we are aware of standard integrations with WorkForce Software Time & Attendance and BenefitFocus. Others would be good to have (i.e., ADP).”

Brian Levine, IT Director, Corporate Systems at a retailer

“SuccessFactors LMS generally is not a financial system. However, some of the clients previously asked for more advanced financial integrations; mainly invoice processing and mainly with external systems. Learning functionality, in this case, hardly can fulfill the requirements.”
